When I first saw her I approached her timidly. I knew that she wasn't going to be within my reach. But then I saw the price in bright yellow and orange neon stickers. Thirty Five. I about choked on my own spit. Alrighty then, Dalila, calm down, I said to myself. There's no reason to give away what a freaking steal this is at that price. Take it easy.
"Oh, would you take $30?" I nonchalantly asked. I went from a timid to rabid in about 2 seconds flat.
"Sure" said one of the ladies taking care of the sale. Hmmm. I was silent. "You can take it for $25."
Wowzers. Time to call the man of the house. Because if I bought this baby, the poor guy was going to have to lug this up a very very tall flight of stairs.
So I called, and he wasn't all that happy to hear about my find. He still remembered when nearly threw out his back with our dining room table, a flea market find. But he didn't flat out say no. "Do what you want."
HA! Ok, you said it!
So I went back and my mom, being the haggler that she is, asked if they would take $20. Sure! No problem.
So here she is folks, my wonderful heart stopping totally unexpected yard sale find. She's a 1960s era Danish Modern teak credenza made by Falster in Denmark.
